"Irresistible" is the insightful, laugh-out-loud comedy we needed during this election year. Putting into perspective what is truly important in any leadership role.

Though at times the narrative opposition is uneven, and the tension sometimes feels forced, the intent is solid.

The problem is Irresistible can be a clunky political critique, one that struggles to maintain its momentum and to establish a consistent tone. It's fast, it's slow. It's sarcastic; it's earnest.

...something of a time-waster, with an absurd 'money-solves-everything' motif...

This zingy satire is so perfectly, beautifully Jon Stewart: big and brash, raging with fury at the state of American politics but also underlain with hope that it might be changed for the better.

Doesn't exactly blaze new ideological ground but the as a reminder of why the political system is twisted and broken, it's a timely tale.

A sly, consistently witty affair that wisely doesn't exactly choose a political side to skewer; let's call it a comedy for equal opportunists.

If you're wondering what sets this film apart from its satirical peers, it's the confidence its filmmaker has in his audience.

If you're a fan of Carell (or Stewart), you'll lap this up. But if it's sharply honed political satire you crave, you'd be better off binge-watching The Thick of It or Veep, or tracking down a DVD of the truly magnificent Bob Roberts.

While it generates some laughs, "Irresistible" lacks the depth and bite needed to make it an effective election year commentary.

Jon Stewart's profane political comedy lands a bit softly.

Steve Carell and Rose Byrne... make two wonderful and passionate arch enemies. [Full review in Spanish]

Surprisingly, Jon Stewart is weak on character development and original comedy. But the ending is effectively stunning, Frank Capra meets the Prez Drumpf era. Worth the wait.

Irresistible is as scathing as you'd expect from Stewart, but it's also unexpectedly hopeful in the end. It's not an easy balancing act in today's nihilistic 24 hour news cycle, but blending humor and humanity has always been Stewart's wheelhouse.

Some of these asides are poignant and fit the film's flow... but some, like a bunch of visual pranks on the audience, don't land, stylistic flourishes that end up feeling underdeveloped.
